5.0 out of 5 stars How Are There No Reviews ForThis???, 13 Jun 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - Game of the Year Edition (PC DVD) (Video Game)
Now, I can understand why people may overlook this game. After all, it has been succeeded by Oblivion (Elder Scrolls IV). The problem with Oblivion is that many computers cannot handle the processing power required, and so the gaming experience can be flawed.
So if you haven't already tried its predecessor, why not? At sub you can't really go wrong. And it is a superb game. Unlike many 'RPG's, this game is from the first person perspective, but this forces the game to strive for graphical excellence, and it delivers. The true genius in the game is the freedom to roam, wherever you please, joining guilds etc at will, picking locks, murdering, the choice truly is yours.
You can take missions to rise through your chosen guilds, and the character development is origional and superb. You are allocated a group of skills, from armourer (notoriously difficult to 'level' up), to alchemy (invlolving the mixing of potions). So there is always scope to improve in one area.
There are so many glorious touches, such as being treated differently by the different races (especially Dark Elves in my case), countless sub-missions, the ability to make invlisibilty rings. The options are truly endless. Until this came along I have been sorely disappointed in the p.c's RPG offerings.
This however is superb. One drawback, the main plot is poor and lacklustre.

Oblivion is also dumbed down, less immersive and boring next to Morrowind.

In many ways, Morrowind is better than the (excellent) Oblivion. Many of the quests are more ingenious, demanding and intense, Oblivion never pushes you quite as much - I think it's been designed for a wider audience that might not cope with the depth of Morrowind.

I totally agree with both comments here :) Morrowind is still fighting off all other games to keep the top spot for my favourite all time game.

Have to say i disagree with the review about the plot being poor- i played this game for months not even knowing what the main plot was or how to engage it, as i was so busy just having fun exploring- finding treasure- doing side quests and killing and robbing many things along the way!
As the game is so huge and complex, you rarely come across the main plot, only reading the tales in books and from characters about what went on thousands of years ago, and finding rare relics from that time which supports the stories.
But once you do it starts to unravel and fall into place- after so long with little knowledge & finally finding the locations of the quests givers, it all comes together to an immensely satisfying and intriguing reveal of your destiny and all the answers about who you are, culminating in a battle with the demi-god Dagoth Ur who is essentially what Lord Sauron is to Lord of The Rings.

Give it a chance and once you get into it, you will likely go back to it time and time again.
